Welcome to HCM.
Sorry to hear about your daughter.
Chicken pox 6 months ago is unlikely to be the cause of the lack of weight gain.
She needs detailed physical examination of her lungs, heart bowels and thyroid and tests to assess these organs if needed.
Kindly consult a senior pediatrician and do the needful.
